#### Description:

This middle school lesson with student guide was designed for use with the PhET simulation Masses & Springs. It is a ready-to-use, inquiry-based activity for introducing the concepts of frequency and period in an oscillating object. Students will be using the tools in the simulation to help them solve a real-world question about designing a bungee jump for an amusement park. The Flash simulation Masses & Springs is a requirement for completion of this activity.

Represent and interpret data.

#### CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.D.10: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.

#### CCSS.Math.Content.3.MD.B.4: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units— whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
